Rooted in the civil law systems of continental Europe, where foundations originally served mainly charitable purposes, the private foundation is an innovative development in common law jurisdictions. More and more jursidictions are introducing private foundations as an alternative to trusts and practitioners are increasingly asked to advise clients on the intricacies of the developing law and the differences between jurisdictions. Private Foundations World Survey is the first survey book to consider comprehensively private foundations law and practice in each of the key jurisdictions. With a unique questionnaire format and summary factsheet for easy reference, it examines all the fundamental aspects of setting up and maintaining a private foundation, with reference to relevant legislation and case law. The two expert editors, along with a team of leading international practitioners, cover an exhaustive range of topics, including protectors, taxation, alternatives to private foundations, forced heirship, divorce, asset protection, and migration of private foundations as well as anti-money laundering and KYC requirements. Alongside 21 jurisdiction-specific chapters (which include jurisdictions where the law is still developing, as well as those with more established systems), the book contains general chapters on the uses of foundations and taxation issues in the UK and US. It thus provides readers with all the information they need to confidently assess and advise on any aspect of private foundations law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
I recommend this book wholeheartedly as a compilation of the sources of the developing jurisprudence from jurisdictions around the world. The work has been compiled by a series of authors who thoroughly understand the significance of this development in a world that has to be more flexible and also more adaptive to the needs of clients, who want to balance provision for succession to businesses or wealth with maintaining influence over the control of the structure. * Martyn Gowar, Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners Journal *
The practitioner and the academic will find this survey of great use. The contributors, well known practitioners in each jurisdiction, have assisted the editors in providing an important and fundamental advance in comparative knowledge of private foundations. The detail to which we are exposed and the discussion will stimulate further thought and out of the controversial points which will arise will develop a greater understanding of the unique multilegislative basis of private foundations and the reasons for controversial. * John Goldsworth, Offshore Investment *
This book provides an extremely helpful comparison of the features of foundations in 21 countries around the world. ...
